HUBER+SUHNER is expanding its product range for battery cables in road vehicles by introducing new flexible cables. The stranding is based on individual wires with OD of 0.21 mm. This will help improve the flexibility of the cable compared to standard battery cables. This high-stranded design in combination with flexible yet robust cross-linked insulation material (REMS) creates the perfect solution for the automotive market's need for a highly flexible and robust cable. The cable will retain its flexibility over the complete temperature range. For example, the REMS insulation material allows the cable to keep its flexing performance even in the lowest temperatures, where other jacket materials, such as PVC, would get very stiff. The wire construction and cable dimension is based on existing ISO 6722 and LV 112 standards and the cables also meet the new IVECO specification (No. 11-847).
The product has excellent resistance to high and low temperature, ozone, UV, and weathering resistance, resistance to pressure at high temperature, motor oil, fuels and hydrolysis, flame retardant, high abrasion resistance, solder iron resistance, easy to strip and process, according to ISO 6722 class D, LV 112, DIN 76722.
It complies with EU directive 2000/53/EG on end of life vehicles. It is also free from lead, mercury, cadmium, and chrome VI.
